Without a doubt, Beyond Blue sets out to blend immersion of the deep blue seas and real, high-quality documentary material to provide an unforgettable experience. It may be short, but it should not be missed. While it is also available on mobile devices, it is certainly best experienced on a PC or console with a nice, large screen and some headphones.
Yes, this game's a bit on the slow side. But that's good since it's relaxing and if you're ever having a bad day or feeling low, you NEED to play this. I firmly believe that games like this can be a great aid for mental health; it's certainly done that for me since I still suffer from depression occasionally. Those giving this game low scores are doing themselves a disservice.
If Beyond Blue didn't try its best to tell a personal narrative with a cast of characters, I still would've enjoyed it despite its simplicity as a game.

Like never removing the warning mark from new fish discoveries, so you always need to check all of them to find something new.
Or the quick access screen not working, when scanning something new.
